Be Exactly Who You Are!

by Laura Gehl, illustrated by Joshua Heinsz

Girls perform to fairy songs.
Boys play football all day long.
Boys yell ‘Boo!’ and run away.
Girls like kittens and ballet.
Except when they don’t.

A lively and empowering reminder that you do not have to choose between dolls or robots, or pink or blue – you can be exactly who you are!
